For those wondering about the nature of politics in Alaska, this should disabuse you of the notion that our “future-looking” state to the north is safe from the bare-knuckle brawling, Chicagoesque style of politicking we associate with Democrat strongholds here in the lower 48.
As most people are aware, Princess Lisa Murkenschnitzel didn’t like the fact that the peasants revolted against her and chose someone else to represent their interests in Washington DC and launched a write-in campaign financed in part by native corps and unions to the tune of almost $600,000.
Princess Lisa also didn’t care for that whole “you have to spell the name of the candidate correctly” thing and sure enough…that too was changed for her. “Misspelled ballots will most likely be counted,” said Gail Fenumiai, director of the Alaska Division of Elections.
Anchorage, Alaska. October 30, 2010 – In an apparent accidental voice mail message left on the cell phone of Joe Miller’s spokesperson, Randy DeSoto, what is believed to be the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discuss creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller. The voice mail message was later authenticated by Mr. McDermott, who sent a text to DeSoto stating “Damn iPhone … I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”
“Frankly, when I first heard this I was shocked,” said DeSoto. “Though a bit garbled at times, there are disturbing comments in this conservation that never should have occurred.”
In the first discussion, the KTVA reporters discuss getting a list of Miller campaign supporters in order to ‘find’ a “child molester.” “You have to find that one person,” says the male reporter, to laughter in the news room. The reporters at KTVA then discuss creating a “Rand Paul” incident at the then upcoming Miller Rally (held on October 28, 2010) and hoping for violence so that they can “send out a tweet” and “Facebook” that “Miller got punched” at the rally.
Nothing says journalistic integrity like setting up a political candidate with a child molester supporter, does it? Or hoping for that candidate be attacked, for that matter.
Here’s the transcript of the captured audio:
TRANSCRIPT OF KTVA AUDIO FROM OCTOBER 28,
FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you’re the expert, but that’s what I would
do…I’d wait until you see who showed up because that indicates we already know
FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters…
MALE REPORTER: Oh yeah… can you repeat Joe Miller’s…uh… list of people, campaign
workers, which one’s the molester?
FEMALE VOICE: We know that out of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of
them will be a registered sex offender.
MALE REPORTER: You have to find that one person…
FEMALE REPORTER: And the one thing we can do is ….we won’t know….we won’t know but
if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what
the… ‘Hey Joe Miller punched at rally.’
FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul…I like that.
FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.
Oh yes! OF COURSE with the kind of people that will show up for a Miller rally, at least one will be a registered sex offender! HAHAHAHA!! Let’s get that on film…that would just be so awesome!
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This memorial day, rapper Snoop Dog reached out via an Instagram video with a little bit of a rant about the current state of black media. Snoop, seeing Roots being played during a day that should be all about our fallen troops, was agitated that the only time they want to talk about blacks in art is to talk | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Today is Memorial Day, and companies across the county have taken time to honor the servicemen and servicewomen who have sacrificed all for our freedom. For instance, at some Chick-fil-A locations (probably most, if not all), there is a Missing Man table complete with Bible, flag, and empty place setting arrayed to honor those who never returned home from the battlefield.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Isn’t it weird how Trump saves his most outlandish (and least truthful) attacks for other Republicans, even though he’s already the presumptive Republican nominee and has no need to run against Republicans at all? It’s almost the guy grew up as a liberal Democrat and still is one at heart, or something. Anyway, the latest Republican to make him | Read More »
